William's Caillou Party!!!

*Massive photo dump ahead!!*

My little man turned two last Thursday and on Saturday we had a party to celebrate!
The theme of the party was Caillou, one of William's favourite characters :)
 and then, she {snapped}

 I'm quite pleased with how the cake turned out! I hate that royal icing stuff, I much prefer yummy frosting so I made red, blue and yellow frosting and then decorated with m&m's and jaffas! The Caillou on the top is a bath toy I got from Canada on Ebay, lol. Caillou is pretty rare in Australia!

 Some of the food on the party table, yummy popcorn, chocolate crackles and mini jelly cups. I bought buckets of sidewalk chalk as party favours for the kids to take home and made little Caillou themed thank you lables :)
More party food!

 Charlotte, William and one of the little party guests enjoying the food :)

We hired Miss Fairy to come and paint the kids faces and she was BRILLIANT. You should check her out on Facebook :)

The birthday boy was first up and he chose a crocodile! He did so well right up until the end when he rubbed his face, lol.

Next up was the birthday big sister, lol who chose a Dolphin Princess :)

What a beautiful dolphin princess, complete with glitter and a sparkling jewel!

Sweet Shot Day

My eldest niece also chose the dolphin princess :)

Beautiful cousins :)

My eldest nephew went for the classic Spiderman face :D
Never dress a toddler in white for a party, lol.

Miss Fairy's face paint stash :)

My second oldest niece chose a beautiful butterfly..

 What a cutie pie!

My second eldest nephew went with a tiger!
I loved seeing the kids faces when they looked in the mirror for the first time hehe :)

My third eldest nephew (I have 9 nieces and nephews all up!) chose the T-Rex, how awesome does it look?!


This precious little doll is my second youngest niece getting a princess face :)
(yes, thats' MY precious little doll in the background wearing a hard hat and wielding a chainsaw, LOL)
 I could just pop her in my pocket, lol

Three gorgeous girls :)

Miss Fairy reflected in her mirror :)

We had a bit of time left over so Miss Fairy did some balloon animals for the kids too, what a star!
 Charlotte and her Grandma (my Mummy)

The birthday boy having a bounce! In a change of shirt, lol.

Miss Fairy even gave him a touch up before she left :D

He's such a little monkey!

My second youngest nephew changed his mind at the last minute and got his face done too with some spiders, complete with spider bite!

Then it was time for cake!!
This is where I dropped the ball and didn't check my camera settings, bad Mummy!
And the m&m's and jaffa's had started to discolour after being in the fridge, boo :(

But I made up for it with some cute cake eating shots!
He really shovelled it in there!
After the cake it was time for the pinata! Filled with lots of junky toys and lollies, just what kiddies need haha!

You might remember my littlest nephew from his newborn shoot! He's a bit young for face painting so he went with a pirate eye patch out of the pinata haha!

My besties kiddos lining up their loot :D
At the end of the day there wasn't *too* much mess, though I probably might not serve popcorn at a party again!!

NapTime MomTog
If you made it to the end, thank you SO much for stopping by, lol.

Love the nephew with an eye patch! ha!

You did a great job on the cake too!

I love this and is my inspiration for my son's b-day party. How do you create the chalk bucket favors? All the buckets I find have labels on them already. Did you remove the label and apply the customized one? Help!!!

Michelle said...

Yes I just peeled the labels off and stuck my own on in place :) When I did the same favours for my daughters Rapunzel party I couldn't get the labels off so I just stuck mine over the top! Hope that helps!
